When Will it End

The invasion has begun
Can you hear the song of the guns
They serenade so loudly
As to be playing for the sun
Shots being fired
Blaze through the air to burn holes
Into anyone
That has come out
To trade blood for blood
Till the enemy has been extinguished
And victory declared
Pain shall be shared
And souls teared
Ripped from bodies
Bones dismantle
Frames shot empty
Burning the picture within
Burn away the memories
Leave no evidence
Take no mercy
On thy enemy
It starts with one bullet
But ends with a plethora of lost lives
Grieving wives
Casualties of wars
Soldiers scarred
Inside and out
Fighting for countries
That don’t see eye to eye
Just see each other as gigantic bull’s eye
The lives lost
Are just a small price to pay to attain peace
No comprising
No piece of mind
For a piece of mind
Just violence that creates violence
Plucking madly at the strings of life
Strumming up a tune of agony
Its a tragedy
But crudely our reality
We love the gore
The pain
The traded fist and blood
The famous phrase
“No pain
No gain”
But what do we gain
Besides more pain
Pools of blood
That leaves our souls stained
Kill off our loves ones
Leaving us the only ones
To remain
When will the violence end
And peace begin….

When Will it End

Artist's Description

When I wrote this I was mainly thinking about the past wars and the war we (U.S) are engaged in. I truly hate that wars come about ….so much is taken just to gain a little moment of peace ….And I just can’t image how life is for those who are actually on the battlefield and those (civilians) that find themselves amongst the middle of bullets and explosions….that are just innocent bystards ……
such images and conflicts that pass thru my head
-Ethnic Cleansing in Africa
-War in Iraq
-and many others that relate….

Well here’s the video I did for it….I hope you like….Daz
